Less than a week to go everyone. We've added yet another sponsor to the bill. KDS will be joining us this year. The weather is looking to be great again this coming weekend. I hope you will all join us in a great day of flying.

We also have Synergy as a sponsor this year. Big thank you to Amy and Matt Botos.

And, to add to our list of pro pilots, I've been told that "Piro" Pete Campbell will be in attendance too.

There is no electricity so definitely bring a generator. You can pull your vehicle right up to where you would set up a sunshade.

The times are 8-4 for the funfly... but I have some pilots staying Friday through Sunday! lol Its private property so at night you can have a fire pit, camp, night fly, etc.

There is a pond for rc boats you are welcome to use, and we have a rc car track that is just getting the final touches put on it but no promises that will be completed this year.

Look forward to seeing everyone!!! Weather is looking awesome!

The 2013 Port St. Lucie Helicopter Smack Down is now in the books and was a huge success thanks to all of you - the pilots and guests, SundancersRC, and of course the sponsors. We officially had 72 registered pilots and many more guests.

I would like to thank all of our sponsors. Their generosity and support made the event special for everyone. As a pilot myself, we all love to go to great events to do some flying, hang out with friends, meet new friends, see some great flying, and of course win something cool off the prize table. This year we were fortunate to have the support of more sponsors than previous years. On behalf of SundancersRC, Todd MacLaughlin and myself, we sincerely thank you, and hope that you'll partner with us again next year for even bigger Smack Down event!

A huge thank you, in no particular order to:

HeliDirect, iKon, Pulse, OptiPower, Byron Fuels, Scorpion Power Systems, Tower Hobbies, Esprit Models, BK Servos, Legend RC & Hobbies, Synergy, Ready Heli, Castle Creations, RC Booya, KDS Models, RC Revolution, and Precision Aerial Filmworks.

The show wouldn't have gotten very far if it weren't for the kind support of the SundancersRC club members that volunteered their time to run administration and sign up, the kitchen to feed us breakfast and lunch, getting the field prepared, providing the tunes to fly to, and hosting the event. Thank you so much for your time and trouble!

And a special thanks to our guest pro pilots Pete Campbell, Art Hughes, Bert Kammerer, and Bobby Watts. I hope that the 2013 Smack Down was enjoyable for you and I hope that you'll join us again next year too.

Again, thank you all SO MUCH!!!

Thank all the pilots, sponsors and club volunteers who came to support our event!!! What a killer day in Florida!!! We will make this three days next year and start doing t-shirts for pilots.
Also, next year we are making this so if you register you also get to use the new car track and boat racing pond... sorry plankers.... no planes.

Here are some more pics...
